Gungnir (GUH-NG-NEER) is part of the hallowed set of weaponry and is the second highest-tier spear in the game, next to the Mushroom Spear. It has a base range of 12 blocks (this cannot be increased with prefixes that increase size). It provides light in very similar way to the Dark Lance and the Mushroom Spear`s glowing mushrooms..


  • Gungnir light
    Gungnir's large size, long reach and the bright light particles it emits make it the perfect tool to check the presence of caves, ores and treasures through walls.
  • Gungnir, and in fact all Spears, cannot be reforged with the Legendary prefix as of 1.1.1, due to them not supporting prefixes that increase size.
  • Gungnir is very effective on segmented enemies.
  • On the Console Version, this is the second-highest tier spear, behind Tonbogiri.


  • Gungnir is the name of Odin's magical spear in Norse Mythology.
  • The name Gungnir means "swaying one" in Old Norse.
  • Before 1.2.3, Gungnir was the most expensive item to reforge on the PC version of the game; reforging a plain Gungnir could cost 75 GoldCoin Small .
  • Gungnir is well known as more of an entity in mythology and therefore is referred to simply as Gungnir rather than The Gungnir.
  • A Godly Gungnir is the most expensive item to reforge as of 1.1.1, costing 1 PlatinumCoin Small 58 GoldCoin Small 72 SilverCoin Small 23 CopperCoin Small 
  • Prior to 1.2, Gungnir was twice as expensive.

Update Info
